          You will need matte board and a matte cutter. two fairly expensive items, that if you do not have your work will end up looking crappy. And if you buy a cheep matte cutter your work will end up looking like pooooo!

          I would just take it somewhere and have it mounted or invest ($300-500) in a matte cutting system and learn to do it well, it will take some practice!

          good luck

            dang that sucks. See in my high school the teacher thought us how to do it,but of course we were using the schools materials and equipment.





            I still would like to learn,but for now.....I think I'll take it some where else


            thanks.

              BTW, be sure to put the two production files in a folder and .zip it. That will help prevent corruption in the multiple hand-offs it sounds like you are doing.

              Send it as a .ai.
              As two files: front and back
              Put Front and Back in the file name.
              Specify if the files are at 100%
              Specify your color as a spot color, probably Pantone Coated...

              I should have included more information in my initial post but I was in a rush. My bad.

              I was asked to put together a t-shirt design on a short deadline as a favor. I am not in contact with...

              This is actually something you should have asked before designing.
              Any time you do something for the first time, always always get the printer's specs.

              The fact that you ask about resolution...
